Premier League Preview: Man. City vs. Wolverhampton Odds And PredictionPublished January 14, 2019 by Sol FH
Manchester City hosts the Wolves tonight at 20:00 in a crucial match for both squads. Can the Wolves pull off another upset?
It was just one week ago that the Wolves defeated Liverpool in the FA Cup, 2-1. It was an exciting match that could signal the beginning of a turnaround for the Wolves in league play. If they manage to win a couple of games and have some good luck with other teams losing matches, they could quickly jump to seventh place from their current spot in eleventh. This is all well and good, and, the way that Wolves played last week against the Reds shows that they can beat the best in the UK, but tonight, they face a team that really flexed its muscles in Cup play last week, beating Rotherham 7-0, so the Wolves may be hunting something that is not easily brought down tonight.
Manchester City has been unstoppable against the Wolves historically. They have won all six of the top-flight matches against Wolverhampton, but, the last time they met in league play ended in a draw 1-1 in the reverse of this fixture. There is a lot on the line for the Wolves tonight, as a draw or better would ensure that they become the second team to hit 30 points after 22 matches in one season. If they continue to win games, they could even break into to top ten lists of most wins by a promoted team in a single season. For reference, the best record by a promoted team was back in 1994/95 when Nottingham Forest shocked the entire nation by finishing in 3rd place with 77-points.
